Description Glims & Gloms is an award-winning dance theatre company, founded by Tuomo Railo and Simo Heiskanen. The company is located in Espoo. The theatre directs its performances to a wide public – children, youth and adults. The theatre's performances combine many elements of the performing arts: dance, theatre, music, visual arts, video and different applications of theatrical techniques. The theatre tours in Finland and makes occasional visits abroad. G&G received the Finnish State Prize in 2009 for merits in dance. The two artistic directors were granted the Dance Act of the Year award at the Kuopio Dance Festival in 2002 and they also received the Espoo Award for a Cultural Achievement in 2001.
